Mobile broadband news

Telecoms watchdog Ofcom has welcomed the commitment of UK mobile broadband providers to a new code of practice.

The agreement, signed by operators such as Orange, T-Mobile, O2 and Vodafone, pledges to make information such as broadband coverage, connection speeds and subscription fees more transparent.

In addition, the code states that any technical terms used by internet service providers should be translated into a language that is easier for customers to understand.

Director of consumer policy at the regulator Claudio Pollack commented: "Ofcom welcomes the mobile operators' commitment to give their customers better information about mobile broadband services."

Mr Pollack added that it will be conducting further studies into mobile broadband services to ensure "consumers' needs are being met".

Mobile broadband, which often utilises a USB dongle advice, was used by approximately two million people in the UK at the end of last year, according to Ofcom.
